    I very strongly doubt that it has any connection with the SS, as the skull looks like no pattern officially used by the SS.
    My gut feeling is that this one of the numerous variants of the Totenkopfschwimmerabzeichen [Death's Head Swimmer Badge], an unofficial swimming badge with a long tradition, which is awarded for swimming at least one hour (originally in the open sea, these days usually in swimming pools).
    Forgive me HPL2008 I didn't spot your post,before i posted.

    Absolutely no need to apologize; on the contrary: Thanks for finding the swimsuit photograph!

    (I had been unsuccessfully looking for it myself, see: Third reich "mad scientist's" photo )

    I concur with those who say this has nothing to do with the SS. If it is not a patch for a swimming organization, it is a fantasy design to fool novice collectors as being SS. The construction of this piece does not resemble anything I have encountered in the 3rd Reich era.

    If still alive she would be in her 90's by now I would think. Perhaps her granddaughter?
